STEM Courses for Certificate Renewal

WEA’s Inclusionary Practices Project (IPP) is a state-wide focus on professional development designed to support staff to increase inclusion for students with disabilities. The project is funded by OSPI and open to all educators/stakeholders in WA state (including education support professionals, administration, paraeducators, parents, special education personnel, and general education personnel.)
